We stayed in a three bedroom house, which was just great for us. There is a swimming pool and a little playground for the little ones just outside of the house. The house was very clean with our own parking space. Good location too with a nearby kids friendly restaurant.

The Parkwood Motel has a terrific location - right at the bus stop into town and near the Sphinx hotel for quick and easy meals. The hosts are the best ever - nothing is too much trouble at all.
